About this property

    The property extends to 1,909 sq ft (177.4 sq m) of accommodation, there are stripped/exposed wooden floors throughout the property with retained original features such as fireplaces, picture rails and panelled doors. The house is set back beyond a small front garden and treelined verge and is accessed via a storm porch with black-white chequered tiled floor, leaded light windows and matching half glazed door into a large entrance. There are two large reception rooms, the front sitting room has a wide bay window and open fireplace, and the family room has an original fireplace with attractive oak surround and a glazed door to the garden. The kitchen is essentially a wide ‘galley' style kitchen with has been fitted in modular style with freestanding timber cabinetry, and spaces for appliances and wide gas cooking range which will remain along with a quarry tiled floor, this space extends into a dual aspect dining room which has a glazed door to the garden. From the dining room is a home office/study to the side which could benefit those working from home. There is also a WC with a high level period style cistern and a utility room with ample cabinetry and spaces for a washer, dryer and chest freezer.

    Upstairs, there are five bedrooms including three large doubles, two of which have ornate tiled fireplaces, copies of William de Morgan tiles. The rear bedroom also benefits from an en suite shower room with attractive period style sanitary-ware. The family bathroom has a re-enamelled roll top bath and high level WC and separate shower cubicle. There is a gas fired central heating system in situ and the accommodation can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans and is available with no onward chain.
